Re: What the heck is 'Real Raw' all about?

Yes, he is. Near the bottom of the link:

Pro™ Formats
Film is the real raw.
RealRaw™, RealRaw EX-S™, RealRaw EX-R™ and RealRaw Pro™ are
trademarks of Ken Rockwell used in the trade of his photography.

But his rationalization is flawed. Film is just as far removed from the original image (if not more so) as is RAW. Resolution/Dynamic Range/Color Space/etc. is just as variable and contrived with film, it's dependent on the type/brand of film used, how it is exposed, and how it is developed.
